Good Friday Walk connects air quality with the cross

It’s all around us, always, and can be the breath of life — or it can hurt us or even kill us. A Good Friday “Walk for Justice” through downtown Toronto will focus on the link between the Good Friday story and the air we breathe. Air quality and air pollution are critical issues, especially here in Toronto. Jesus confronted the forces of oppression in his age, and inspires us today to do likewise

The walk, which continues a tradition begun more than 20 years ago in which Christians from diverse churches hold a creative alternative to traditional Good Friday services, invites participants to listen to reflections, watch drama and dance presentations; sing, pray and reflect, then move on, following a contemporary “Stations of the Cross.”

Before and after the Walk for Justice, participants will gather for reflection and solidarity. “We invite all people of faith to join us on March 21,” says Elaine Perkins, a walk  organizer. “The Walk is a challenging yet inspiring event that attracts over 300 people, some living far from Toronto, who see that justice is at the heart of the Gospel. Good Friday can be an important step on a new path to a rebirth of our souls, our society and our care for God’s fragile creation.”
